While You Got It, Flaunt It! New Press Release Coming Out!

Since the new e-book has retained first place in the non-fiction e-book category at Payloadz.com for the entire three weeks since its debut, I thought it was an occasion for another media release, so I have written one and submitted it to PRWeb for publication on May 21.

But because you're all my buds, thought I would give you first dibs on it. Feel free to copy and paste it into emails to send to your TREK/De pals, and to send it to TREK and De Kelley websites if the spirit moves you. The more people who get involved in disseminating it, the greater its exposure... and I'm all for that! And hey, if your very own essay is spotlighted in the book, send the media release to everyone you know, to let them know that you helped create the top-rated non-fiction e-book at Payloadz! (That would be you, Mary, Billie, Alison, JD, John and Maria... you know who you are!)


Newest DeForest Kelley Title Debuts as #1 Nonfiction E-Book at Payloadz.com as Newest Star Trek Adventure Warps Across the Silver Screen

Kristine M Smith, author of DeForest Kelley: A Harvest of Memories (2001), claims top spot for her newest Kelley book, ENDURING LEGACY, at Payloadz.com.

Seattle, WA (
PRWEB) May 21, 2009 A newly-released e-book, The Enduring Legacy of DeForest Kelley: Actor, Healer, Friend, written by Kelley's former personal assistant Kristine M Smith, skyrocketed immediately to first place in the non-fiction category at Payloadz.com upon its May 1st release, where it has resolutely remained for three weeks.

In the new 61-page electronic book, Smith compiled the memories and reminiscences of nearly two dozen fans and friends whose lives were blessed and changed forever by the career or kindness of the late actor who portrayed Dr. Leonard "Bones" McCoy in the original Star Trek television series and motion pictures.

"I'm delighted the new book is receiving top honors at Payloadz," Smith says. "It was a real labor of love for so many of its contributors and for me. And the unanimous, positive reviews of the book have also been gratifying. "

The e-book reveals that many of Kelley's devoted fans have gone on to become doctors, nurses, medical technicians, social workers, and other helping professionals, while still other fans continue to impact the world as writers, actors, and teachers.

The success of the new book has also bolstered sales of Smith's earlier memoir about the actor who became her mentor. DeFOREST KELLEY: A HARVEST OF MEMORIES suffered from an untimely release date, coming as it did just weeks after the attacks on the World Trade Center and Washington D.C. on September 11, 2001, relegating the memoir to easy dismissal by and silence from mainstream media. Now that both books are receiving attention during the recent release of the newest STAR TREK movie, prospects for both books have increased significantly. Smith has been contacted to do radio and podcast interviews from science fiction and golden oldies radio producers.

Smith says, "This June 11th will be the tenth anniversary of De's passing. I can't imagine a greater tribute, at this time - to the man and to the actor - than the timely attention being paid to these two books, along with taking in the wonderful resurrection of the McCoy character as portrayed by Karl Urban. He was able to capture so much of what De's spirit and sensibilities brought to the role. I hope my two books will show that DeForest Kelley, the man, was every bit as worthy of respect and emulation as was his alter ego."
